Just a bit, I had a few exciting moments like the one in the first vid until i got the hang of where the track was slippery.

I was able to attack it a bit more after following Blair for a few laps. He was taking a "diamond" line so that he could carry more speed through 7, then brake in a straight line over the slippery part, and bring the car back in tight for turn 9 and the exit to the backstraight.

I need to get a new camera myself, something that records to an SD card would make it a thousand times easier to import and edit video clips.

Blair commented that I did a nice job keeping my P10 on the road the few laps before I went off into fancy tire land and let me tell ya, when a FF starts to spin out, you cannot power through it or do anything. It is quite un-nerving and takes a lot of skill to FEEL your car before it gets too out of hand because it seems like once the FF goes, if you do not catch it, it is too late.

I can tell from what my Dad said that MCarp has a wonderful feel for his car.
